A long, weighty vintage wall rosary glimmering with faceted glass beads in a warm amber tone. This larger-than-life piece is from my personal collection of vintage rosaries I have found over the decades and lovingly repaired and studied-- as they have influenced most of my necklace design. While most wall rosaries are quite rustic and earthy, this piece has a refined elegance and even glamour-- the way the faceted beads catch the sun light, casting amber pools around the piece is truly beautiful.
Rosary measures 36" long with an 8" drop including crucifix and Marian (Initial "M" style) connector. There is a patina and some verdigris on this piece which I have not cleaned, as I feel it adds to its mystery and beauty.
I have photographed this on my size UK size 14 mannequin for a sense of scale but please note this piece is too heavy to be worn as a necklace and is intended as decor.
All my vintage is carefully sourced and lovingly refurbished and my jewellery is made by hand by my partner Mike and myself in a converted 18th century naval school on the wild North coast of Scotland. All pieces come gift wrapped with lavender and Scottish heather.
